Emperor's new glasses?
A few days back I was visited by a female Emperor dragonfly who was acting strangely in my garden. I watched her closely as she appeared to be laying eggs in crevices on the edging of my pathway and also on a piece of driftwood I have by my pond. I'd taken the net off the pond, but she appeared to be oblivious about the water. She also let me get really close up to her, which was brilliant, and she had no fear of me whatsoever. I watched for quite a few minutes, before she disappeared off. She returned the following day but didn't stay around.
Has anyone else witnessed this kind of behaviour? Couldn't help smiling as I was thinking to myself - should have gone to Specsavers!
I've uploaded a picture. (Never tried this before and I hope I haven't uploaded the whole of My Pictures, because I was worried about what came up in the upload box!)
